In September 2019, I will start a new position as an INRA researcher at the CBGP (Biological Center for Population Management, Montpellier, France).

My work include two main axes of research: the study of adaptive life history traits using quantitative genetics and the investigation of genetic conflicts (including their application for the control of natural populations using gene drives).

I have been doing lab (and sometimes field) experiments with a variety of model and non-model organisms (Drosophila, Aspergillus, Artemia, Medicago, microsporidia). I have also developed some expertise in statistical analyses of individual life history traits using Generalized Linear Mixed Models and survival analyses.

Some keywords of my research:
quantitative genetics, analysis of life-history traits, gene drive, experimental evolution, local adaptation.
